    I am surprised no one here mentioned plugging in your phone via usb and copying all the data off your phone as a precautionary measure.

    Never the less the fact the you are asking and afraid of bricking your phone shows well you shouldn't have done it in the first place as clearly your not comfortable with it.

    Therefore ask yourself this, if you don't brick your phone are you comfortable with living with bugs that will impact the battery life and how you use the device on a day to day basis?

    Furthermore are you willing to risk bricking your phone reverting back to wp 8.1?

    If the answer is No to the above questions, then tough luck you have brought this upon yourself and have yourself to blame. I have no sympathy for people who don't take heed of the stark warning shown:

    The only thing you can do now is reflash using the Lumia Recovery Tool and that means wiping everything out, including the downloaded installer.

    Thanks. So if i restore before updating would that save me from bricking?
    Yes, go download windows phone recovery, plug your phone in and re-install everything, quit asking questions, if you downloaded that update your now on a time bomb, do it before it installs it and bricks it.

    and for the future, stay the hell away from the TP, you are CLEARLY not who its for.

    EDIT: I quoted the wrong post, so ill clarify to this, restoring increases the chances of the update suceeding, but it can still fail. I very strongly recommend not doing this, just restore your OS, and stay out of the TP for now, at least wait until its officially supported for your phone (though i still recommend you don't do it at all)

    In File Browser make sure you can view "hidden" and system folders. Copy/paste everything...

    Your toolkit is missing some very basic skills. Please study hard before making any more "hacking" attempts.
